Oh, brother! Sibling mischief and best pal escapades are the problems Peter Hatcher faces in his attempts to deal with his impossible little brother, Fudge. Based on the popular title by perennial favorite Judy Blume, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is a humorous look at family life and the troubles that can only be caused by a younger sibling.
Smucker’s PB&J Café offers a unique chance for children to be introduced to the world of live theatre, where empathy, collaboration and human connection are fostered. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing will open many young audience members’ minds because so many kids can understand what young Peter, played by Jed White, is going through.
“Every kid can relate to growing up and trying to manage all the things that come with that,” said Education Manager and director Anna Lisa Fischel.
Also starring in this production are Blaine Yates as Dad, Jimmy Fargo and Ralph, Micah DeRouen as Fudge, Ashleigh Darnell as Mr. Yarby, Dr. Brown, Mr. Vincent and Sam, Joanna Murdock as Mom and Mrs. Darby, Ali Wills as Mrs. Yarby, the Nurse, Janet and Dr. Cone and Kaelin Maro as Sheila Tubman, Jennie and first ambulance driver.
GVT’s Education Program also offers individuals with sensory sensitivities the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre. The sensory-friendly performance will provide a safe and comfortable environment for children and adults on the Autism Spectrum, as well as individuals with sensory input disorders and other developmental, cognitive and physical disabilities. No food will be served during this performance.
Watch as Peter tries to keep up with his brother’s antics in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing: One Act Version. Dinner theatre performances will be Oct. 1-4 at 6:30 p.m. A sensory-friendly performance will be Sept. 30 at 6:30 p.m., and is a Pay-What-You-Can event.
